Visitor Attraction

Proposed Visitor Attraction

The Trust was awarded £10,000 from the ‘Investing in Ideas’ Big Lottery fund. This grant, together with £5,000 from the National Park, was used to fund a Feasibility Study into the development of a Community Enterprise Visitor Attraction.

Such a development could act as a focus to attract visitors to the area, as well as providing additional facilities for locals, and an income to help support the Three Villages Hall. Some ideas as to what could be incorporated include a café, visitor information point, heritage exhibition and visitor attraction, gift shop, and supporting facilities. The Feasibility Study has been carried out by Gareth Hoskins Architects, together with Jura and Davis Langdon Consultants. Click here to view or download a copy of the report. 

The completed report broadly concludes that a visitor attraction adjacent to the Three Villages Hall, comprising a cafe, meeting spaces, and a heritage-focused exhibition space, together with associated support spaces (kitchen, toilets etc) could prove viable.

The Trust has appointed a subgroup, which is fully accountable to the Community Development Trust, to gather additional information and identify potential funding sources with the aim of moving this project into the next stages.
